FISH•PROTECTOR™with Polymer Colloids, Heavy Metals Detoxifier, Vitamin B12 and Echinacea
Formulated for use in both fresh and salt water.
Fish•Protector™ is a professional quality water treatment that calms fishes, reduces losses, eases stress, minimizes infection and aids healing - thereby helping to protect fishes during handling, illness and transportation. Fish•Protector detoxifies the free ions of the heavy metals present in public water supplies,such as zinc, iron, lead, copper, and arsenic, which can be lethal to fishes and invertebrates.
Fish•Protector forms a multi-layered protective slime coating on fishes` skin, protecting fishes during handling and minimizing infection. The coating works as an effective healing aid for fishes with bruises, missing scales, or frayed fins. The protective slime coating is formed by special polymer colloids, and does not involve irritating the fish’s surface by the use of salt. Fish•Protector`s polymer colloids beneficially absorb medicinal dyes, e.g., methylene blue and malachite green, as well as antibiotics, e.g., oxytetracycline and itrofurazone. Fish•Protector acts as a carrier for such medications and can be used as an aid in applying them to the fish’s skin. Fish•Protector combines skin slime replacers, that are more concentrated and faster working than that used in Kordon’s NovAqua®Plus, with the addition of vitamin B12 and increased Echinacea, all of which aids in the normal healing process of injured fishes.DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Shake well before using. Add 1 teaspoon or capful of Fish Protector per 10 gallons of water, or 1 fl. oz. per 60 gallons, or 1 cup (8 fl. oz.) per 480 gallons. Dosage can be increased or repeated without adverse effects. Add to shipping water to prevent damage due to shock and skin abrasion. Fish•Protector
does not interfere with fishes’ gills or breathing, or with the measurements of water quality test kits.
If water is suspected of containing chloramines (a chemical complex of Chlorine and Ammonia) in any form, add Kordon’s AmQuel®Plus. AmQuel®Plus is a single-step, fast acting remover of chloramines, chlorine, and toxic nitrogen compounds in any form including ammonia/nitrites/nitrates.
To fully condition tap water, to buffer pH, and to add electrolytes, also add Kordon’s NovAqua®Plus to the water. Fish•Protector, NovAqua®Plus, and AmQuel®Plus and all of Kordon`s treatments for aquatic use are fully compatible and equally effective in fresh and salt water.
Also, Fish Protector is compatible with the Kordon water clarifiers (Trans Clear, Sea Clear), the nitrifying and sludge bacteria additives (ZymBacs, Tidy Tanks, Tidy Turtle), and all Kordon medications.
WHEN SHIPPING FISHES, add Fish•Protector to the water at the recommended dosage (or greater in crowded shipping conditions). As an additional protection use Kordon’s AmQuel® Plus. For longer distance shipping, the amount of AmQuel® Plus used should be increased (generally 3 to 5 times the normal dosage) depending upon the shipping time and amount of toxic excrement and other toxins such as pheromones released by the fishes and other aquatic animals in the water.
THE IMPORTANCE OF THE POLYMER COLLOID SLIME COATINGS TO THE FISHES` HEALTH. Fishes are sensitive to the presence or absence of their slime coating and are aware when it is reduced or missing, causing stress. The Fish Protector`s coatings are substantial and multiple layered, anchoring cell layers deep into the skin of the fish to protect it from infections. The coatings repel viruses and bacteria, thereby aiding in keeping pathogens away. The coatings do not interfere at all with the fish`s breathing, as is required for the release of carbon dioxide through the fish`s gills, and the intake of oxygen from the water.
Fish•Protector is not a medication and is not intended to be a substitute for any chemotherapeutic agent.
Non-toxic to humans, pets and aquatic life.
